Hazratbal shrine UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • Kamal-ud-Din Farooqui, 73, a retired scientist from Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, was barred from the Hazratbal shrine, where he served as the Imaam-o-Khateeb, a priest who leads prayers and delivers sermons on auspicious days.

  • On April 5, Farooqui presided over a ceremony ahead of Friday prayers, when a non-Muslim converted to Islam at the shrine

  • The conversion was broadcast live on scores of social media handles. It resulted in growing criticism in Jammu and Delhi

  • The episode was followed by the registration of a FIR for offences, including promoting enmity between different groups and hurting religious sentiments.

  • The Waqf order too said the incident has “caused confusion and chaos among the general public and has the potential to disturb public harmony”. 

  • It felt that “both Islamic law and government regulations were not followed”.

Hazratbal shrine

  • Situated on the left bank of the famous Dal Lake, Srinagar, the Hazratbal Shrine holds relevance to Muslims as it is believed to preserve 'Moi-e-Muqqadas' – the sacred hair of Prophet Muhammad's beard

  • Hazratbal remains central to Kashmir’s politics, with the original structure built in 1623 by Sadiq Khan, emperor Shah Jahan’s subedar

  • The construction of the current structure started in 1968.

  • It is also referred to as Assar-e-Sharief, Dargah Sharif and Madinat-us-Sani
